Rusko Art Holidays Galloway

Stunning state-of-the-art studio set amidst the glorious Galloway countryside in South West Scotland

Rusko Studio is a converted Victorian stables situated in the heart of beautiful Dumfries and Galloway offering luxury Art Holidays Scotland.  It is the home of artist and course tutor, Elizabeth Gilbey.  Elizabeth offers five day residential painting courses.  Guests stay in a luxury flat in the renovated stables adjoining the studio.

The area has been favoured by artists for more than a century for its light and especially lush green landscape.  It was discovered by members of Scotland’s renowned Glasgow Boys and Kirkcudbright is a designated Artists’ Town.

Non-painting partners are very welcome and the local area offers magnificent walking, outdoor sports and sightseeing opportunities.  Rusko Studio is in a National Scenic Area, on the edge of The Galloway Forest Park and Cairnsmore of Fleet National Nature Reserve. The area is a designated UNESCO Biosphere and the UK’s first Dark Sky Park.

Rusko Art Holidays Galloway offers the chance to enjoy painting alongside a professional artist and be guided as you work. The teaching method is the time-honoured way of working alongside an accomplished artist to learn through demonstration and practice.

All courses are in oil paint unless otherwise specified.  Watercolour specialist teachers will offer courses to be confirmed.

No prior experience is necessary, but all levels are welcome. Painting course participants are welcome to bring their own materials but a limited selection of student paints, brushes, palettes, palette knives and aprons are available to buy at Rusko Studio.  Canvas boards are also available to buy.
